Here is a great deal on a 27" monitor by NEC for $699 that's 4K. Good luck.

I recently got a Dell 2715Q for $507.00.

99% sRGB, 78% Adobe RGB. 3 year warranty.

I've been very pleased with it. I have it connected to my Alienware 15r2.

Good luck!

I've never owned Dell products (actually looking for a new computer myself), but when I was looking for a new monitor about a year ago, everyone here on FM were snatching up the NEC refurbished Multisync PA272's which are 27" monitors, so I got one and it's been the best monitor I've ever owned. Amazingly accurate for photography if you get their X-rite calibrator and use it before you print your photos.

The only complaint is that the calibrator is expensive and you can't use a regular X-rite calibrator with the NEC.

Short of that, the monitor itself has very nice color and is bright and realistic. I have a ViewSonic next to it and a Sceptre HD television on the other side, and I can really tell the difference between "generic" and a good quality monitor. I'm sure the 4K monitor is absolutely amazing!!! Maybe one day I'll switch the ViewSonic out for the 272 and get myself the NEC 4K as the primary. Have fun.

Yes you can -- the i1Display Pro will work.

Neither the Dell 2715Q or NEC EA275 are wide gamut. Both hit 100% sRGB but only 70-80% Adobe RGB. I'm sure sRGB is enough for some, but i wouldn't buy a non-wide gamut screen for photo editing any more.

Unfortunately for wide gamut *and* 4K you need to pay a fair bit north of $1000.

I've been looking at the BenQ SW2700PT as a possible upgrade recently. Only 2K, but pretty much full Adobe RGB colour space coverage, hardware LUT and excellent screen brightness uniformity. And well within your budget.

I've been using Dell 30" monitor 2500x1600 for the past 9 years. May not be as advanced as the new ones,but it does the job perfectly and these can be bought under $500 these days.

You're likely better off sticking to 2560X1440 and getting something with proper hardware calibration than going 4K and sacrificing accuracy. I always point people to the NEC PA272W and it's in your budget. Also not every interface scales well to 4K, and if you play games or do anything else similarly demanding you need $1000+ video cards to do it properly.

You can use any number of colorimeters with the NEC monitors and the NEC hardware calibration software, including a range of Spyder and X-Rite models. Personally I use an X-rite Eye One LT (the exact same model that NEC takes and re-labels). In fact NEC updates their software specifically with support for more colorimeters as they come out. When I bought my PA271W, NEC wanted $400-500 for the $100 X-Rite Eye One LT with their name on it, so I bought my own.

I'm happy with my Benq SW320, but it is a 31" and slightly above your price limit.

There's a smaller (and slightly more budget-friendly) version of that printer coming... the SW271
